Want 10 Good Reasons For A Professional To Switch From Nikon To Sony? Award winning photographer Jason Lanier lists the 10 reasons why he stopped shooting Nikon and went to Sony Mirrorless cameras. Thank you Jason, you made my day posting this. I keep getting asked the same questions and giving pretty much the same answers your giving here. You’re not alone in your thinking about how much further advanced the Sony technology is, and neither am I. Like yourself, I am not sponsored in any way by Sony. The opinions we are expressing here are completely our own, derived from our individual professional experiences not from receiving cameras or any other form of paid compensation. And like Jason, that does not mean I will not be sponsored by Sony or some other camera manufacturer in the future should an acceptable proposal be presented, but rest assured that I will always make full disclosure of any financial relationships should they occur.
Jason has shot with Nikon his entire life and professional career. He switched to Sony in July 2014 and hasn’t looked back since. I first let go of my Leica’s – concerned about possible theft of camera equipment that was so expensive I could not easily replace it. I did hang on to my Canon 5D Mark III until just over a month ago when I did the switch over completely as well adding the Sony A7S to replace it. I also haven’t looked back since. A few jobs in the can later I can safely say it was the only smart choice for me to make given the extraordinary capabilities in the A7S – especially for video – which has become an important part of my hybrid storytelling.
Jason’s followers have been asking him about the Sony’s and have wanted to know the specific reasons why he left Nikon. This video explains all the 10 reasons and includes sample pictures that Jason has taken with both the Sony A6000 and Sony A7S in various assignments all over the world. It is a great piece of content, well worth your time to view if you also are considering a move to mirrorless technology. Welcome to mirror less madness. Come on in, the water is just fine and so is the technology!
